(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.)- Kids and their parents spent their Saturday morning learning about the weather.
It was the subject of this month's Family Fun Time event presented by the United Way of Greater St. Joseph. Families met with science educators and had fun with various demonstrations, games and crafts about our atmosphere.
Jay Martin of the United Way said it's never too early to start exposing children to the fun behind math and science.
"It's not just getting them prepared for kindergarten but also getting the parents prepared at an early age because their brains are developing," Martin said. "So you want to be working on activities at home to get them used to leaning and seeing words, what shapes are and what numbers are."
KQ2 Meteorologists Mike Bracciano and Vanessa Alonso were present at the event.
They showed the kiddos how the weather is done on television in front of a green screen and got to learn how to make their own tornado tubes.
